Morning blogsters:

Groggy headed  this morning.  Can't recall whether to fall back or forward.  Ran short of coffee so I'm trying to take up the nerve-ending slack with doses of tea, which isn't all it's cracked up to be in that regard.

But otherwise things are pretty fine.

I've mentioned Guy Clark as one of my favorite songwriter/singers.  He's another of those who never gained much fame except by having others sing his songs.

Here's one I don't rank among my favorites but it seems somehow appropriate this fine fall morning:

How'd You Get This Number?

 

Sorry 'bout your mama
sorry 'bout your paw
sorry 'bout the business
with your brother-in-law
Hard cheese about the money man
hard cheese about the stock
hard cheese about you bein'
up to your ears in hock

Tough luck about your luggage
tough luck about your socks
tough luck about the way
that the other shoe drops

Too bad about your girlfriend
too bad about your wife
too bad about the thing
you call the rest of your life


How'd you get this number man
who do you think you're talkin' to
who do you think your kiddin'
what do you want me to do
how'd you get this number man
please don't make me laugh
you know you oughta be on TV
with a line like that

I heard about the car wreck
I heard about the fight
I heard about the time
you's in jail all night

I know you don't like trouble
I know you don't like to fight
I know that you can argue
with a fence post all night

I heard about the lamp shade
I heard you had it on your head
I heard you told a joke and
knocked the whole room dead

No kiddin' 'bout the cough syrup
no kiddin' 'bout the junk
no kiddin' 'bout you been
in a deep blue funk

How'd you get this number man
who do you think you're talkin' to
who do you think your kiddin'
what do you want me to do
how'd you get this number man
please don't make me laugh
you know you oughta be on TV
with a line like that

Written and recorded by Guy Clark

You gamblers have a lucky day.

Jack
